Your Itinerary (one day):
After a brief sea kayak orientation and introductory lesson from our guides, we’ll launch our kayaks and paddle eastward toward the heart of the Santa Barbara waterfront, past Stearns Wharf and toward Montecito. A possible detour into Santa Barbara’s harbor, a breeze at our back and a "downhill" current make this trip particularly enjoyable for the first time kayaker. You’ll gain a unique appreciation for the panoramic views of the Channel Islands and the Santa Ynez hills, often referred to as the American Riviera, which provide a perfect backdrop to our Mediterranean-style city. The calm Pacific waters, breathtaking beaches, majestic views and mild weather lure kayakers into Santa Barbara’s protected waters to explore its natural beauty. This excursion provides an excellent introduction to the secrets ocean kayaking can unveil and the pleasures of sharing a day on the ocean exploring alongside family and friends.
